Bold new styling breathes new life into a beloved classic; call it the Air Jordan 12 White/Gold for now, though perhaps it has greater ambitions in mind.
The famous silhouette and paneling of the AJ12 are faithfully retained, but the actual construction is completely out of left field. The usual leather or nubuck composition of the upper is swapped out, replaced with an intricate weave that immediately calls to mind the Air Jordan 15, before the usual leather mudguard rounds out the all-white look.
So, does the woven effect indicate this could be a special edition design, such as an Air Jordan 15Lab12? Or might the gold-eyelets-on-white-upper aesthetic be a sort of Air Jordan 12 Pinnacle?
Whatever it is, early reports indicate the Air Jordan 12 White/Gold may just be a sample that’s not destined for release, so take another wistful look below. Of course a launch could still be in the cards, so stay tuned for updates as they roll in.
